The Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA) hosted the 8th Storage Developer Conference (SDC) in the Hyatt Regency in beautiful Santa Clara, CA (Silicon Valley) earlier this year. As usual, Microsoft was the underwriter of the CIFS/SMB/SMB2 PlugFest, which was co-located with the SDC event.
For developers working with storage-related technologies, this event gathers a unique crowd and includes a rich agenda. Key industry players were represented and offered presentations. It’s always worth reminding you that the SDC presentations were usually delivered to developers by the actual product development teams and frequently the actual developer of the technology either delivered the presentation or was in the room to take questions. That kind of deep insight is not common in every conference out there.
Microsoft presentations this year included:
SNIA has now released the content publicly, including video recordings for many of the talks. Check these and other presentations (all with slides and many with video recordings) at http://www.snia.org/events/storage-developer2011/2011presentations
If you like the content, be sure to mark your calendars for next year’s SDC 2012. It’s always a great event and the details are already out at http://www.snia.org/about/calendar/2012-storage-developer-conference
